Happy 2018

2017 has truly been a fantastic year for auroras and I have a few New Releases to show for it. After 15 years of trying, this past March I finally preserved “Cathedral of Light,” an exceptionally bright surge of auroras over a picturesque Orthodox church in Anchorage. In October, I had a wonderful trip to the Brooks Range of Northern Alaska and came home with “Braids of Light,” a unique vertical panoramic shot that my wife Shay had requested. On the road trip up Denali stopped me in my tracks and energized me with its “Mountain Mojo.” On the way home I stopped near Fairbanks and got blown away by a Seahawk-looking reflection “Mystic Mascot.”

Hapiness Is
Happiness is...camping! Todd & Shay Salat enjoy a campfire party (with a little Van Morrison playing in the background) while aurora hunting in the Wrangell Mountains this past September.

It’s Showtime!
March First Friday Event!

3 Movie Bundle

Each of these movies are a great way to experience the awe-inspiring auroras in motion through Todd's extensive time-lapse footage. Together, they provide an in-depth experience into real life aurora hunting and were many years in the making. Both visual journeys are enhanced with science and music that ranges from space-age acoustic sensations to aurora rock! 3-Movie Bundle


Solar Cycle

Here's a graph illustrating when in the solar cycle I've taken some of my favorite shots. The key thing to remember is that auroras occur throughout the cycle from Solar Max to Solar Min. They're just not quite as common during the lows in the cycle. More on the Solar Cycle

Precious Metals

We are absolutely smitten with Metal Prints. The results of having my aurora & scenic shots printed on aluminum have been WOW-With Out Words! The inks are dye-infused onto a specially-coated aluminum sheet and sealed with a gemlike UV coating that is both water and scratch resistant. We have commonly heard people say, "It's like looking through a window"...."Are these backlit?"...."They look so 3D." And the archival quality is out of this world (think century plus). This is a technological breakthrough and the results are in HIGH DEF!
